Madaba Archaeological Museum reviews
Must visit place in mabada.. well arranged just 1 jd . Wonderful mosaic arts are there. Historical church is the museum more »
The place was covered in Jordan Pass and could be better with audio guides. we spent only 20 min here more »
This is almost same as the archaeological park. One of the must see when in Madaba. Amazing ancient mosaic arts are on display. more »
A nice little museum, tucked away, downhill from St John's Church. Some mosaics, folklore and archaeological artifacts.
Museums in medaba should be valued a lot more. Their care is insufficient.
One of the richest places in Byzantium mosaics, from the 5th to 8th centuries. Folks are very nice and helpful.
Nice displayed items and well organized, but unfortunately, there is only one Un noticeable sign "Museum" off the road.
Several residences inside the old quarter of Madaba joined to form the Madaba Archaeological Museum which houses mosaics from Madaba and its governorate at large. The museum is tucked away in a narrow alley, so it is not easy to find at first. The rooms host artifacts from several locations across the region covering all main historical periods including the Iron Age, Roman, Byzantine and Umayyad. This museum showcases a good collection of Moabite and Ammonite findings. The entry fee to this often overlooked museum is included in the combined ticket (3 JOD) that also covers Madaba's Archaeological Park as well as the Church of the Apostles. At the time of writing, there were plans to open a new archaeological museum closer to the center of Madaba by the Burnt Palace. Therefore, the function of this older museum might change.
